Congressional hearing 'diss track' goes viral

In the video, Congresswoman Jasmine Crockett can be heard asking a question during the House Oversight Committee hearing, seemingly referencing a hypothetical scenario: "Just to better understand your ruling, if someone on this committee then starts talking about somebody's bleach blonde bad built butch body."

Reportedly, the phrase "bleach blonde bad built butch body" was then repeated and set to a beat, creating an impromptu diss track.

Congressman Moskowitz shared the video on X (formerly Twitter) and titled it "Oversight after dark."



 

Crockett responded: "J&J (Jared & Jazz) dropping diss tracks like we Kendrick Lamar... MTG Truly wanted the smoke tonight."

According to Newsweek, following a House Oversight Committee hearing on a potential contempt resolution against Attorney General Merrick Garland, an incident involving Representatives Greene and Crockett created significant disorder.

The commotion began when Greene made a comment about Crockett's physical appearance.

In response, Crockett questioned Greene's relevance to the matter at hand, asking, "What that has to do with Merrick Garland?" and continued, "Do you know what we're here for?"

"I don't think you know what you're here for," Greene retorted and added, "I think your fake eyelashes are messing up what you're reading," exacerbating the tension.

Earlier, Greene had stirred controversy by mentioning Loren Merchan, the daughter of Juan Merchan, the New York State Supreme Court judge overseeing former President Donald Trump's hush money case.

Loren Merchan is known to work as a Democratic political consultant.

The situation escalated into an uproar, with panel chairman Representative James Comer repeatedly banging his gavel and calling for order. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez insisted that the committee should reprimand Greene for her remarks.

"That is absolutely unacceptable. How dare you attack someone's physical appearance," Ocasio-Cortez stated.

Greene responded, "Are your feelings hurt?"

"Oh! Girl, baby, girl!" Ocasio-Cortez retorted angrily. "Don't even play!"

"Oh, really? Baby girl? I don't think so," Greene shot back.

The hearing was subsequently paused for a few minutes. Greene agreed to "strike" her words from the record but refused to apologize.

After the brief suspension, the exchange between Greene and Ocasio-Cortez continued.

"Come on guys," Comer pleaded.

"Why don't you debate me?" Greene said.

"I think it's self-evident," Ocasio-Cortez said.

"Yeah, you don't have enough intelligence," Greene responded.

Things seemed to calm down until Crockett took the microphone and responded to Greene, directing a question to Comer about what constitutes a personal attack.

"I'm just curious. To better understand your ruling, if someone on this committee starts talking about somebody's bleached blonde, bad-built, butch body, that wouldn't be considered engaging in personalities, correct?" Crockett asked.

"A what now?" Comer responded, looking confused. "I have no idea what you just said."

Representative Anna Paulina Luna then asked Crockett to "calm down," to which Crockett replied, "No! Don't tell me to calm down because y'all talk noise and then you can't take it! Because if I come and talk s*** about her, y'all gonna have a problem!"

At the end of the hearing, GOP Representative Lauren Boebert took it upon herself to "apologize to the American people" for the events.

"I just want to apologize to the American people," Boebert said. "When things get as heated as they have, unfortunately, it's an embarrassment on our body as a whole."
